From some of your past questions, you seem to be on a few different pages as far as the type of loan you have and what you want to buy. You had mentioned purchasing foreclosures before but also mentioned having difficulty getting someone to help you with a VHDA loan. It is difficult to buy a foreclosure with a VHDA loan - sometimes. If you are looking for a steal that needs some work that's good, but if you are looking for something that you can buy very low that needs real work, you will need a different type of loan OR the money to do it yourself and if you are using a VHDA loan, that will be problematic. you will also have a hard time finding a bank to loan you the money for a hosue and the repairs if you plan on doing the repairs yourself. Often, in these loans, the money is given to a pre-approved licensed contractor that has already applied wtih your bank to do the work. You need to sit down with someone who can explain all the different types of listings out there and the requirements to purchase each listing. If you are wanting to bid on a home and have a VHDA loan, a cash buyer often looks better.
Call me, call another agent here, just call someone who knows how to help you and will give you good guidance. That's what we do for a living. you can spend a lot of time driving around looking at homes and getting all excited about places just to find out that it is an 'as is' sale that has $3k in termite damage already discovered and you will not be able to proceed.
Good luck and remember, an agent can help you with general information and provide public information to you but to be your agent (represent you and give you specific advice on a property) they have to be YOUR agent.
I am sorry to hear that you are not getting your fair attention. It is always better for you to have your own agent representation. When you have any agent working for you your agent has the ability to scan the MLS for the properties status and advise you of the current status. If you want to see a home your agent has the ability to show you that home at your convenience. If you like the home and want to put in an offer, your agent prepares all of the necessary documentation and submits your offer for you, all of which will be documented and legally can not go overlooked by the listing agent.
That being said, please contact me if you're looking for an agent that will be there for you every step of the way.

Almost 100% of the time it's better to have your own agent. It does not cost you, the buyer, to have your own agent. If I am working for a buyer I seek my compensation from the seller, which is normal.
That said, she should have kept your number and contacted you, so truly she did drop the ball and there is nothing more you could have or should have done, except to perhaps get her number and call ever so often to drive home your interest.
Contact me if you're looking for the perfect agent. :)
